Text color will not change
« on: July 21, 2020, 12:43:30 PM »
Good afternoon all,

Can someone look at attached drawing and tell me why all text is showing up white? Color is set to bylayer, cecolor is "bylayer". All text on layer I-N-TEXT should be yellow. I have never seen this before. Any help on solving this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
David

It's the monochrome plot style that is showing up. Change the plot style table to none for the tab.  :-)

Plot Style toggle by: Tim Creary makes toggling Display Plot Style in the current Layout's Page Setup easy:

I usually edit in the Model tab with it off and leave it toggled on for all the layouts for the WYSIWYG effect.
